Channel 9 digital is now back on actual Channel 9, so a UHF only
antenna is not what you want. There may be some channel 7-69
antennas on the market, which could do the job and be somewhat
smaller than a full VHF-UHF antennas. I'm not sure if Stark
Electronics is still in business in Manchester, or if they now only
have the Worcester, MA store, but that should be a good place to get
what you need.
